Monalisa Chinda Coker, AGN’s director of communications, confirmed the development in a statement to TheCable on Thursday.

Rollas’ tenure as a president, it is understood, will end in November 2022.

Cocker said the board of trustees for AGN has also named those to midwife the national election for national executive committee (NEC) members ahead of Rollas’ tenure.

“[It] is headed by Steve Ebo aka Ajebo as the chairman while Blessing Edwards serves as the secretary. Other members are Augustine Osadebe, Asabe Madaki, and Moji Oyetayo.

“The national president, Ejezie Emeka Rollas confirmed that he has received the list of the national AGNEC members transmitted to his office by the registered board of trustees.

“No date and venue have been set for the national election but the revised 2019 AGN constitution provided that an electoral committee to nurture fresh election be set up three months to the end of an administration.”

The AGN regulates and represents the affairs of film actors in Nigeria and abroad.
